Undead and Unappreciated (Undead #3)
Reluctant vampire queen Betsy Taylor may rule the topsy-turvy world of the undead, but now Betsy's discovered that she has a long-lost half-sister who's the devil's daughter--and destined to rule the underworld.
I have a weird relationship with Betsy, kinda love-hate. Sometimes I think she is funny and witty, but then there are other moments in the books where I just wish somebody would smack something really hard in her head. But now, at least, she has accepted her relationship with Eric, which makes me wanna like her a bit more. Eric is a sweet and lovely hero. Although I liked him much more in book 1 where he was strong, po...more
This time around, she learns she has a half-sister, Laura. Yay! Then she reads the Book of the Dead and goes insane. Boo! It turns out that a side effect of reading the book is a trip to crazy-town. Before she gets control of herself she manages to take a bite out of Jess and seduce Eric. Naturally, Jess is livid, and more than a little freaked out at Betsy for chomping on her. But it is Eric's suprising reaction to finding out Betsy was loco when they had sex that really sends our...more
Betsy becomes even more shallow, pigheaded and crass, if that's possible. Everyone else operates as spokes on her self-centered little wheel. Plot points are brought up only to be left as loose ends. Betsy's half-sister seems to be a plot thread, except that there's no real event or resolution involving her. Sinclair's an idiot who is app...more
In this book, Elizabeth Taylor the Queen of the Undead finds out that she has a long-lost half sister. Wait... that's not the surprise. This sister turns out to be the Devil's (yup, that one from Hell) daughter, and has been destined to take over the World.
Betsy, the Queen of the Vampires, is a shoe loving, blood-obstaining vampire who drinks milk instead. However, because she's queen nothing harms her, including crosses and even stakes.
There is the Book of the Dead though, and after fighting with Eric Sinclair, she closes herself off in the library and reads for hours. But she ignores the warnings that reading too much for too long...more
'Undead and Unappreciated' is the third book of the 'Undead' series. Betsy's adventures continue, and finally she finds - I guess it's neither a secret nor a surprise - 'happily ever after' with Eric Sinclair.
I opened my door and gaped. Sinclair was in my bed [...]....more

Das sagt doch schon alle...more
Betsy is still drooling over shoes and trying to learn how to rule the undead. The language is such fun. I have absolutely nothing in common with Betsy and I think that's part of the fun. I have NEVER worried about what my shoes looked like. (I'm more interested in how they FEEL.) The great addition in this book is a half-sister - who also happens to be the...more
My only complaint came from The Book of the Dead. I hated the scenes with Betsy after she read the book and her interactions with Jessica and Marc. One of the things I really love about this series is the friendship between Jessica and Betsy and I really felt the book suffered with their...more
Anyway, these books seem to get better with each one, with this one a little more serious than the first and second book. So turns o...more
The author's editorializing about race seems like she has a serious chip on her shoulder. Why does she need to bring a conversat...more

"Excellent," I said. "I would also have accepted 'You haven't seen the last of me' and 'You'll regret this'.”
"Of course you do," he said, totally unsurprised.
"WHAT? I finally tell you my deepest, most personal feelings and you're all, 'Yeah, I already got that memo'? This, this is why you drive me nuts! This is why it's so hard to tell you things! I take it back.”
